John Compton was one of the first Compton's to come to America. John settled in Roxbury in 1634 and was a freeman of the Colony. He took part in the "Antinomian Controversy". As a consequence he was forced to build a bridge for the colony. John's father was Thomas Compton of Compton Wynyates. John had a son named John Compton. When John Compton Sr died his son John Compton Jr was adopted by his first cousin Henry Compton who was the Archbishop of London. John Compton Jr went back to England and then came back to America and settled in Charles County Maryland at his Brathwood Estate, over a few generations the family filtered into Virginia in the Southwestern part of the state(Henry and Pittsylvania Counties).(Note: His Grandaughter is Ann Putnam, the famous Salem Witch Trial accuser.)
